Crockpot Creamy Italian Chicken Over Egg Noodles

Happy hump day!

This is a meal that I found on Pinterest from a few different sources and is one of those recipes that everyone seems to have a variation of. I loved how comforting and nostalgic the creamy chicken was when paired with the buttered egg noodles.  Kellen and I both loved the meal, but Ron was not overly impressed. I also loved that is made fantastic leftovers for work the following day.  Next time I may add a few veggies to the dish for a little texture, but was overall very happy with the meal.  The flavors from the Italian seasoning added a nice zesty flavor to the chicken. 

This week is flying by and tomorrow my baby turns 2! I can’t believe how fast time has gone and wish there was a way to slow down. I love watching him learn and grow, but it all seems so fast.

Yesterday we finished getting the decorations on our Christmas tree and general holiday decor around the house. Kellen was a sweet helper and handed me ornaments  and directed me to different free branches for each one.  He got bored after about 20 minutes and tore around the house in his Santa hat yelling “ho ho ho!”, but that was equally adorable.  Tonight, Ron is working at the lab and my friend Emily is coming over for our Law and Order: SVU fix. I found a test on Buzzfeed yesterday to determine which Law and Order SVU ADA I was. Fantastic. In case you are wondering I am Rafael Barba and my friend Emily was Alex Cabot. If you do not know who these people are I think it is high time that you sit down and let yourself fall victim to an SVU marathon.

As I mentioned tomorrow is Kellen’s birthday. Sniff. He is going to daycare and told me that he wants to “see friends”.  I am putting together a little treat for him to bring and share with his class. After daycare we are meeting friends for pasta and ice cream- another two of his favorites.
